The food was outstanding, really awesome. The plates were all international. Unfortunately the bad part is the personal. There were few tables outside and 4 waiters (2 for each table, more or less) the drinks took too long to arrive and when they came for...my friends, I still needed to wait even more for my drink. My drink came when the others were almost finishing theirs. When I asked the waiter about mine he even laugh on me. This is not the behavior that the personal of an international restaurant should have.More

Too many restaurants nowadays are a bit weird. This wasn’t. It was just superb. Fancy restaurants often have small portions. This restaurant was fancy but the portions weren’t small. Wine list great. Service brilliant. Cool jazz played at right volume. Overall, loved it.

Had an amazing evening in the restaurant, and all I have to give is praises. The service was amazing, I felt that i'm being taking care of the whole time, but without pushing it too much. Whenever I wanted something I just raised my eyes...and someone was there. When I didn't want to get bothered - nobody bugged me with unnecessary questions. But the star of the night was the food - elegant, full of taste, smells amazing, great presentation, decent portions, reasonably priced. I'll come back to the restaurant during the week just so I could get to taste other dishes in the menu (it was really hard to make decisions). Only comment I have is that I wish there was an option for a full tasting menu, I would definitely take that if that was an option. I highly recommend the place, and I think that you can't really visit the city without having a nice meal here. Looking forward for my next visit.More

Fine! ❤️ Fine dining, fine service, fine location, fine everything! For sure we will be back! Nice ambiance, maybe you can work a bit on the dimming of the lights. Congrats to all the waiters, attendive and present all the time. I never felt the...need to ask for something, because they were next to us. Congrats, Hadad! We will wait for you in our restaurant to make a note too. It will count! Best regards!More

This is the best restaurant, I have visited in Bucharest, a class of it's own. Romantic ambience in a residential area, very professional service, delicious mouth watering dishes, creme de la creme, although not cheap, but worth every cent.

Nothing special about the food, nice presentation but nothing more than that. Overpriced and small dishes. Well branded. Disappointing.
